A woman, known to the audience only as L'il Bit, tells a story of her complicated relationship with her uncle. Uncle Peck taught Li'l Bit to drive, as well as a few other things. [[WordofGod According to the playwright]], Paula Vogel, ''How I Learned to Drive'' is "a play about the gifts we receive from the people who hurt us" -- and about control and manipulation. It is possibly the most heartbreaking play about pedophilia and incest you'll ever read or see.

It won the UsefulNotes/PulitzerPrize in 1998 and was revived OffBroadway in 2012.
